The Strollers originally got together when my brother David, Derrick Brunton and I decided to form a Group
We were all from Stoke Ferry (Norfolk, England), it was early 1961 and like most other Bands at the time, we started playing in local Pubs which for us were "The Crown" and "The Bull" in Stoke Ferry, "The Plough" at Lakenheath and "The North Star" at King's Lynn.
At that time the three of us were playing mainly instrumentals. One Sunday night, I spotted Nigel Raines who was playing drums in "The Bull". I spoke to Nigel and soon he was the fourth Stroller!
We met Johnny Alsop at the "Plough" and Johnny beacame our first vocalist. Johnny was an excellent vocalist but was really into Country Music whereas we really wanted a Rock 'n' Roll Singer and it wasn't long before we found the perfect young man, name of Danny Eves. Danny was a big hit with everybody and stayed with us until 1966 when The Strollers decided to "call it a day" and disbanded.
Danny formed a new Band named "Reformation" and David and I joined them. We stayed with them for three years when we both left.
In the late 1970's David and I started a Country Band name of Prairie Moon and had a very successful six years on the Country scene.
In 1991 Danny and The Strollers reformed with all orignal members and stayed together until 1995 when Danny decided to "call it a day". Danny was replaced with the infamous Kenny Rudling who was an instant "Hit" with the public.
In 2004 Derrick had to retire from the Band due to ill health but we found a brilliant Guitarist to take his place name of Peter Young.
In August 2009 Kenny decided to head for pastures new and Andy Watts, a well known Norfolk vocalist took the front spot.
The Strollers are still filling the Dance Halls now, just as they did in the sixties, so after all of these years it was well worth while spending all of that time practising in the little "Wooden Shed" in Wretton Road....
